Authentic is the name at this place. The menu allows for Mexican or American Style. The salsa and chips was excellent and food was super fast! Good carne asada tacos. Definitely stop back in near future!

Some of the best Authentic Mexican I have ever had. Some of my buddy's said this was real Mexican and man were they right. Pork tacos blew me away and I cant wait to go back. Small pink trailer with just plain great good.
